Summer Camp Teen Volunteers

Our Summer Camp Teen Volunteer programs is currently suspended. We look forward to a return in 2021.  Please check back here for updated information.

Teen Leadership programs are a hallmark of the YMCA. We believe this is the age to join your peers and experience opportunities to deepen your interests and understanding of the importance of becoming a leader.

Teens who have completed 8th grade, can apply to volunteer in one of our many day camp this summer.  Volunteering at day camp teaches teens how to work with children, learn important job skills and helps prepare them for the future.
